Do you have a picky eater at home? Do you want your child to eat more fruits and vegetables? Getting children involved during the cooking process and talking about food can assist in nurturing a positive relationship with food from an early age.  

Elle Eat Kids hosts virtual small group cooking classes that you can join from your own kitchen!

Each cooking class includes a kid friendly recipe that Michelle Esten, a certified teacher and nutritionist, guides children through step by step to create a finished product they are proud of. All the while, kids will gain kitchen confidence as they are introduced to important kitchen tools and explore new healthy foods.

Michelle has over 10 years of teaching experience and a master’s degree in Nutrition. She wants to instill a passion and curiosity within children as we establish healthy lifestyle habits.
